Crime Incident vs Crime Statistic

All who attended the Crime Database Workshop can now tell the difference! Seen here is Commander Herzog fielding questions, the database was presented by Ana Reyes who manages crime data at the East Division LBPD. Both were terrific and informative. We had attendees from other areas, including Whittier! Our Rose Park go-to team for safety reports based on the new database Kenny Shiozaki-Kawamoto and Danielle Dague Potter were on hand to glean best practices and other ideas.

Go to the new crime db  and the video instructions, then check out RPNA’s example.  Ton of appreciation to Brooke Baker, 7th Street Church who provided the space, coffee and welcoming hospitality.

Answer: Crime Incident is derived from the report submitted from the officer. Crime Statistic is derived from a review and categorization process defined by the FBI. Here is the location of Crime Statistics at the LBPD site.

Just in time for AMGEN

Retro Row 4th Street BID with Luther Burbank School and Rose Park Neighborhood Association put out the welcome mat (or banner) just in time for this weekend’s Mother’s Day AMGEN race – 12 times through Retro Row – COME ON OUT! The banner is on the south side of the school campus correctly placed for all those cyclists! And thank you Karen Hewus, Look Graphics who is a terrific supporter of our RPNA functions!
